In My Heart 
By Melody Thomas

      Lady Alexandra ‘Alex" Marshall’s heart was lost to a common servant of the crown—an Irishman. He filled her head with dreams of the future and claimed her hand in marriage. Her father was enraged when he learned of the nuptials. He forced the two apart, banished the groom, and requested an annulment. Heartbroken, she continued with her life but she never forgot him. Years later, her days are spent working in a British Museum. She is content to fill her lonely days with her work. When a fortune in jewels and priceless artifacts turns up missing, she reports it to her Supervisor. He blames her for the disappearance and she finds that it is necessary to prove her innocence.

    Sir Christopher Donally is known as the owner of a successful architecture company. His business is thriving and fast becoming the talk of society. He never expected to see the one woman who refused to leave him mind – Alex Marshall. It had been ten years since they had last seen each other. Time did not erase the passionate feelings that still burned bright in his mind. He finds that she has been accused of a crime he knows she didn’t commit. When she asks for his assistance to help solve the mystery, he readily agrees. As the past and present are brought back together, will there be hope for the future?

   Melody Thomas has written a superior example of a historical romance that one will never forget. Her heart felt characters, locked in the mist of conflict and turmoil will draw you into the story. Mystery and romance readers will not want to pass this one by, for it is filled with the elements that they find in very few books. Very highly recommended.
